[UV] STEINHEIL lenses for UV

As I was testing (again) lenses for UV photography, so I ran a few more spectrometric tests now on STEINHEIL lenses, which might be of interest. These are all M42 thread mount taking lenses in silver aluminum barrel.

UV transmission graph:

In terms of UV transmission, all are quite good (except the Culminar) but all exhibit focus shift.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
